Alice Guinn Spillman, “Nana”, age 90, went to be with Jesus, Sunday, November 3, 2019. Alice was born January 25, 1929 in Flag Pond, TN to Dennis and Adel Gunn. She grew up in a busy home with an older brother, Jack, and two younger sisters, Pauline and Kathryn.

Alice moved to Virginia, where she met the love of her life, Charles Spillman, and raised her loving family. She then became an active member of Cumberland Presbyterian Church.

Alice worked at Leggett Department Store until her youngest child started school and her grandchildren were born. She then began babysitting and providing care, for not only her grandchildren, but countless others. Nana has touched the lives of so many people at ball games, local events, church and in her home. She never knew a stranger. Nana’s care, love, support, advice, hot meals and good laughs will be remembered and we hope instilled in all of us.
